I had meant to listen to this over the next month but finished it in a long weekend. Timing is everything and this weekend my wife and family packed up the house of her recently deceased mother. As the topics were very interesting and seemingly well-researched I couldn't help but churn through the chapters but it was very unsettling and I have not had much sleep.
I have to recommend the book as a comprehensive examination of Christopher Hitchens' views on region and it's flaws. However, I think I'll need to re-read/listen to the entire book again after some time has pasted to be honestly be able to say I fully understood it.
This book starts with such sadness and sorry that I wasn't sure I could continue. The story smacked me straight in the face and I was totally shocked. However, it is brilliant and I will go on and read the other books.
I would never consider myself a sci-fi fan and have never got immersed into a series but this is different and very addictive.
I had listened to the 25th anniversary edition of Ender's Game that finished with the 1st chapter of the next book "Speaker of the Dead". Whilst i applaud the technique to encourage me to buy the next book, I honestly didn't like the chapter. I thought my journey with Ender Wiggins was complete. However, fortunately I read an Audible review that listed a different path to read the series. I'm so glad I heeded their advice.
